Who are people?

Do you ever ask yourself about animal behaviour and how it relates to humans?

When your dog who appears really to like your best friend one day turns round and bites him, whose fault is it?

This may appear to be completely unrelated but I am thinking about theRohingya people of Myanmar, the already appalling behaviour towards them, the possibility of impending genocide, and the apparent defence of the country’s attitude towards them by the previously almost sainted Aung San Suu Kyi.

Perhaps this is reminiscent of the treatment of the Red Indians in the USA or of the Aborigines in Australia or of the black people in South Africa or of the Jews in Nazi Germany?

I am sure of one thing: hate and fear are hugely powerful emotions which we would do well to avoid.
